the last presidential -- the first presidential debate. obama now at 45%, romney at 49%. that's a significant shift from before the debate when the president was ahead by eight points, 51% to 43%. but let's dig a little bit deeper right now. this question, all likely voters who were asked answered, obama doesn't know how to turn the economy around, do you agree or disagree? 54% said they agree with that. 44% they say disagree. that sounds like trouble for the president's reelection campaign. >> that does. that number -- first of all, the top-line numbers are surprising because i believe pew has been a pr pre-pro obama poll. pew's been pretty good for obama. the top-line numbers are really surprising. have to see if other polls show the same thing. but as you point out, that's the key number, the economy. how does obama get out of this box of voters being not happy with the economy? but up until now, willing to perhaps give him another chance. i'm surprised. i'm surprised the debate turned things around, if they indeed have, that quickly. obama has two more debates to turn thin

that drubbing that president obama took, and we've got the vice-presidential debate this week and maybe that was close are than the last two presidential debates and they're very important. >> as of now, dead heat. all across the country, the national average, dead heat. >> i like that, and by the way, we still ask scott rasmussen in about a half hour, how many people were polled after the jobs report. how big a factor is the jobs report in that time. >> and we got the twitter feed this morning, as a matter of fact, and he said this is three day tracking poll so those numbers are the latest since the debate. >> so they wouldn't include the jobs numbers? >> not the jobs numbers, but the debate performance. >> and definitely the debate. and we've got a surprise drop in the unemployment rate friday, mainly because of the household survey, that would be 60,000 people surveyed, and from that, miraculously, we found that 873,000 people had joined the work force. and at "varney & company" we want to focus on what we call the real unemployment rate, which is 14.7%, when you take into account th

things come to fruition, i think he's going to win the presidential election, i'm pretty happy about it. >> governor rendell we noticed that president obama in the last debate did not look like he's prepared. i doubt we'll see the same performance the next time around. what do you think he needs to do? >> well i think he needs to be more aggressive. first of all he needs to be more passionate about his accomplishments and his accomplishments i think are fairly significant. he took over a country that was on the brink of financial collapse, saved the financial syst system, got the american automobile manufacturing system again, we've had half a million manufacturing jobs, best period of manufacturing growth in a while, housing starts are up, consumer confidence is up, automobile sales are up, rail traffic is up, the unemployment rate is under 8%, we're headed in the right direction and i think he's got to be pretty affirmative about that and i think he also has to call governor romney on the inconsistencies we saw in the first debate but i think jim is right, governor romney terrific per
